Happy Burns night everyone!

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
And sae let the Lord be thankit.

Those with roots in the auld sod ken it well. Only a neap doesn't fancy neeps. (tatties, and the great Pudding.) I make a point of enjoying it every time I go across.

Youse cannae ken?

Separate point about 'youse' as the singular. In Australia, the ill-educated use 'youse' as the plural of 'you'. As in 'Youse blokes are ...'. The same people have problems with verb tenses, as in "I seen wot youse blokes done". They often have problems with 'th' sounds, as in "I seen wot youse blokes done wif dat fing." And so on.

Radge is to be crazy, or to do a crazy thing. Radgy means randy, or horny.
The word "youse" is also commonly used on my home town's south side, where in the early days the Poles settled on the South, and the Germans the north there being a wide valley separating the two. youse could be used in the plural, or the singular, didnt seem to matter.(but in American English, what rules do?)
